The Penny Seats began in 2010 with the idea that Ann Arbor deserves to be brimming with excellent live theater that is easy to get to and won’t break the bank. We think high-quality performances can occur in casual environments, and should not have to cost patrons top dollar. Thus, our mission is to create excellent, accessible, affordable theater and to provide a creative outlet for experienced Michigan theatre artists.
